The results

Kings College London used the device as part of a study involving 250 children to understand daily exposure to pollutants including PM2.5 and NO2 on the school run. As a result of the study, 31% of children changed the way they commute to and from school, to reduce their exposure to air pollution.

A clearer future

Children take 17-30,000 breaths a day. Their lungs are still developing, which makes them vulnerable to air pollution. City air can contain potentially harmful pollutants – including nitrogen dioxide and PM2.5.

That’s why this study is so vital. It will help us monitor exactly what our children are exposed to, to inform effective solutions.

Pollutants aren’t just a problem outdoors

Dyson whole-room purifiers use the same intelligent sensing technology to detect indoor particles and gases.

Our purifying fans react automatically, drawing air through an advanced filtration system. They capture pollutants and project purified air throughout the room.
